I want a pay raise.:)

Pete, I'm too tired to report today so I'm calling in sick. The Care Bears came to visit me last night and we partied a little too hard.

Seriously though, we had fun. Thanks Pete and Dave and all of the volunteers. And, thanks to all of the pilots who make the event what it is.

Best,
Brian

It was awesome. It was my first warbird event and I only joined this club a few months ago. My dad even loved it and he hasnt messed with rc airplanes since the 60's with his two spins around with a control line plane. Which went right into the ground. That B-29 show was great. The people, planes, and set-up were great. The only thing that wasnt great is the fact I want to blow my money on a giant scale warbird now... [:@]

NO such thing as "BLOWING MONEY" on a giant scale warbird.

Congratulations on another great event, looking forward to 09' and I may actually fly something!
Great noontime show on Friday, it looked like a scene from a WWI movie with 12 or was it 13 WWI planes in the air at the same time!

How many WWI planes did you manage to get in the air on Saturday?, it was an incredible sight. Thanks to everyone involved that made it an awesome event for us spectators.

I believe there were 19 WWI planes in the air at one time, a Record I think!

Hi everyone. Thanks for the thanks. There are many who work hard for the event and its worth every minute. Big thanks go out to Pete and Dave Malchione who seem to just have everything under control no matter how hectic things got.

Unfortunately, I missed most of the Saturday show because I was out at the main gate with the Park Rangers from 6AM until about 3PM, but, I heard that there were 21 WWI planes that started out in the half time show. One plane went down due to battery issues and another plane didn't quite get airborne.....I didn't hear what the issue was. But, it must have been an impressive sight as I did see the awesome and inspiring sight of 13 WWI warbirds in the air at one time on Friday.

The Sunday half time show was also very impressive and we even had a short and unscheduled low flyby of a L-39...but he only made a single pass. Big thanks to Mac Hodges who stayed on Sunday to perform his impressive B-29 routine.

We've received some incredible positive feedback from pilots, vendors and especially spectators this year.

Big thanks to all of the pilots who attended this year. You make the event what it is! I don't have a final total but I hear that we're up around....and probably over....the 200 mark.

Best,
Brian

I think the two big changes this year, the location of the spectators and the storage tent, were outstanding. I hope to see them both stay the same for next year.

I would like to thank Dave, Pete and the entire Delaware club on an outstanding event. The event is not only made when the pilots show up, but also by the people that put the event on. We have meet some of the nicest people in the 5 years we have been attending the event.

Thank you again from the Wisconsin crew!

I've been volunteering for 8 years and I know Pete and Dave have been the CDs at least that long. We did have a ceremony with a plaque awarded to Pete and Dave 3 or 4 years ago....but I forget how many years the award was for. We'll have to find out! I hope Dave or Pete know! :)

Actually, and I know Dave and Pete aren't ready to talk about this yet, but, we've already been contacted with requests for information for next year's event. I may start up the online registration early.

Best,
Brian
